I agree Tina that it is sad we have no news of Simon lately but having said that he is probably having some private time for himself and his family which he deserves away from the cameras. However, Breath has still not been released in the UK (not even on DVD) which is sad and I'm not holding out much hope for High Ground being released here either. Sorry to be so disheartened but it's how I feel at the moment. sad

I agree with you, news are scarce and it's frustrating, some updates on his projects would be welcomed. Would be nice if his PR attaché was active on his behalf on social medias.
But I absolutely understand that he needs privacy, as all of us, I think he's had his share of media exposure after the mad years of The Mentalist…

As far as I know, he said in a recent public appearance he was back to work with "The Shepherd's Hut" screen adaptation.

Anyway, I'm glad "BREATH" won all these awards from the cinema critics, they are deserved! hands

I've read The Shepherd's Hut, although not really the type of book I'd normally read it would explain the scruffy beard look! Glad he's had so much success with Breath and that he seems to be keeping busy with other projects. smile

Do you think Simon will act in The Sheperd's Hut? But which part? I thought it's an older man.

I liked the other book he has rights on with Rebecca more and I would love to see him as the main character. That would be an interesting role for him.

Breath was not in the theatres here in Germany, too. And I doubt that Higher Ground will be in cinema here ...hopefully it will be out on DVD soon.

I'm glad too that Breath was so successful and won the awards biggrin . So well deserved. Simon has put so much into that movie.

I'm not sure if Simon would be directing The Shepherd's Hut or perhaps acting and directing. He could play Sid Clackton (the father at the beginning of the book) or Fintan MacGillis the old fella living in the hut. With that beard and make-up (even dyeing his hair grey/white) he could look a lot older!

I also prefer Man In The Corner. Perhaps his next project?

Cicero by Kee Chang

A book of film knowledge from prominent industry players, spanning a decade of a journalist’s career, arrives this summer.

Datz Press is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Cicero, a 10-year compilation of film knowledge by journalist Kee Chang,
featuring portraits by acclaimed photographer Reto Sterchi.
Cicero is a tribute to all the directors, actors, and creative polymaths who have sat down with Chang for a conversation in his career
as a journo, including Simon Baker, who graces the front and back covers of the book—a surrogate for the Roman orator.

Thanks for the info on the book DSP. That’s quite something having pics of Simon on both covers and what a great pic too. Quite atmospheric.
It’s so good to see him again as it feels like ages since we’ve had any info or pics. Would be nice to find out what he is busy with at the moment. Anyway he is looking really good and nice to see him with his boys.

Thanks a lot for the pics Marie biggrin smile .
The boys are young men now, and I'd say Claude looks a lot like Simon. Nice to see he had a great time with his sons.

Yes Deedee ...very rare to get info or new pics of Simon these days. I miss him!
